The heart of practice retreat was a truly empowering, fulfilling experience. Pamela’s generous, gracious leadership in a breathtakingly beautiful setting enabled us to deepen our Reiki practice, expand our understanding of healing, and create a foundation to move forward as Reiki practitioners.

The Reiki retreat in Mexico with Pamela Miles was a unique and special event. Spending the week with Pamela and the Reiki practitioners was a profound experience. The beautiful and peaceful setting promoted meditation and reflection. Due to Pamela’s ability to personalize the discussions I came away with a stronger feeling of peacefulness, love, and knowledge. I am forever grateful to Pamela for her guidance and inspiration.

It's time for you to reconnect with your best self

We live in a turbulent world. Too often, despite your best efforts, the stressors start piling up until your daily life too often feels overwhelming

  • Are current events making you anxious?
  • Do you have a health concern?
  • Are you weighed down by an important decision?
  • Are you feeling burned out or unfulfilled?
  • Do you know something has to change, but you’re afraid to make the wrong choice?
  • Or is everything good, but you sense there’s more to life, to Reiki practice — and to yourself — than you’re currently experiencing?

If you experience any of the above, then it’s time to refind yourself.

In this 6-day, 7-night Reiki Retreat you’ll reconnect with the best version of yourself so you once again be fully present in every area of your life.

This rejuvenative retreat will guide you to the steady contentment that lies within. You’ll be nourished by practice, ocean beach walks, and two delicious meals each day, prepared to your dietary needs (lunch is on your own). You’ll leave feeling seen, heard, respected and loved — by yourself, and by those around you — and empowered to step into your future.

If you’re a Reiki professional, you’ll find the increased depth and clarity gained during the retreat will help you share your Reiki experience with potential clients and students more effectively, which can help grow your practice.

Join me for a profoundly restorative week of practice and good company while you learn skills to create happiness and health for life!

What You'll Learn

Your retreat will take you deeply into your practice so you get more benefits. You can practice as you learned, or make tweaks in line with what Hawayo Takata taught (likely easier and faster) — as you choose. 

Come dive into your practice, and leave your retreat restored, feeling like your best self, and with take-home support to stay connected to that best version of yourself, always.

Our Reiki Retreat Site

The “Present Moment Retreat Site” is located in the sleepy town of Troncones, on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Temperatures hover around 80°F during the day. The sun is always shining. And your room is just steps away from the beautiful beach.

Retreat Schedule

Our daily retreat schedule

  • Optional sunrise swim or walk on the beach
  • Optional morning self practice in group
  • Free time or optional yoga class
  • Breakfast
  • Morning group practice and discussion
  • Free time for lunch and afternoon adventures (pool, massage, bodywork, cacao ceremony, nap!)
  • Group table practice watching the sun set over the Pacific (everyone gets a treatment)
  • Dinner

Each morning discussion session includes a short Reiki free-write, so you’ll learn a new skill to continue deepening, exploring and discovering on your own after our magical retreat ends.

Each day includes in-depth discussion and reflection, Reiki free-writing, self practice, and table practice (you get a full treatment and practice in pairs on others).

What's Included

Our special Reiki retreat fee includes:

  • accommodation in a single, double or triple room with en suite bathroom, pillow-top beds and 400 count cotton sheets, most with a traditional palapa roof and many with their own decks (three concrete structures have AC with a $50 surcharge).
  • daily breakfast that fits your dietary needs
  • daily dinner that fits your dietary needs
  • group exploration & self-discovery practice and discussion sessions each morning
  • sunset group Reiki practice each day (you practice with others on tables and you receive a treatment)
  • daily optional yoga classes (two available each day)
  • transportation to and from Ixtapa airport. 

You’ll fly into Ixtapa airport. Your retreat fee includes transport to and from the airport to our retreat site, where I’ll welcome you on Saturday, February 10.

You’ll leave oh-so-refreshed a week later, on Saturday, February 17, so you’ll have a day to rest when you get home before starting your work week.

You can arrange to arrive in Troncones earlier or stay longer as you wish. Ask me for options to stay in the area. Troncones is a small town and places book early.

We’ll start with dinner Saturday evening. Our retreat sessions begin Sunday morning, February 11 and run through Friday evening, February 16. Saturday, February 17 is your return travel day.

The town of Troncones is walkable. If you want a ride, taxis are inexpensive.

PLEASE NOTE everyone is responsible for your own travel insurance and travel arrangements between your home and Ixtapa, Mexico, and for your lunch each day

You’ll have lots of time to walk the beach, or choose among options available for additional fees, such as a massage or other bodywork at Present Moment or across the street. An hour massage at Present Moment is currently $80.

Is horseback riding on the beach on your bucket list? You can arrange to be picked up at our retreat site (payment in cash directly to the organizer).

Other optional activities such as whale watching or a cacao ceremony can be arranged for an additional fee.

A Word About Food

Present Moment’s healthy cuisine is a delicious Intercontinental fusion style featuring fresh-caught seafood, vegetarian specialties, regional Latin American dishes, Asian delicacies, and housemade desserts. They also serve a wide variety of mouthwatering smoothies and elixirs, and will gladly create special meals for guests with special dietary menus.

Our retreat includes breakfast and dinner (lunch is on your own on site or in town, as you choose). The breakfast buffet includes coffee, tea, fruits, yoghurts, and two hot items such as eggs, mixed veggies, or pancakes (selections change daily). At breakfast, you’ll receive a consolidated menu with dinner selections.

My fave lunch cafe is steps away and there’s a very authentic Mexican cantina a short walk down the road.

Travel Logistics and Packing

Ixtapa, the local airport, is a half hour drive from Troncones.

Your retreat fee includes transportation to and from the airport, so be sure to let us know your flight plans.

There are many possibilities if you want to extend your time in Mexico. I often enjoy a stopover in Mexico City, or a few days in San Miguel de Allende or Oaxaca City (I can suggest a B&B and a great mezcal tour!). All offer a lot of culture and interesting day trips.

Days are warm to hot (low 80s), nights are cooler. Always good to pack a light jacket or sweater, and some long pants. And of course, bathing suits. Towels are provided.

Our sessions are in an open-air pavilion. You might want a shawl for the morning. Bring a notebook or journal, and your favorite pen.

Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende are cooler.

Retreat into the comfort of your deepest self, and discover your own sweet reset, one you can build your transformation on. 

Thank you also for an absolutely fabulous retreat! It renewed my deep enthusiasm for Reiki, and was a powerful reminder that I serve my aspirations best when I take good care of myself. I look forward to spending time with my discussion notes, and am grateful for the wonderful support group we all came away with. Thank you for your DEEP respect and desire to take Reiki practice to so many people! I respect your work immensely!

I attended the 2020 Mexico Retreat as a planned moment of self care, to get away from the hubbub of regular life and focus on my practice. I'm not usually a morning person, but found myself waking up before dawn to watch the sun rise. Pamela's discussions and guided practices were just what I needed. This trip gave me the sanity and stability to face the isolation, panic and frustration that Covid would bring soon after I got home. I made friends I’m grateful for and still in touch with. And the food was spectacular!
